Summer is now officially in full swing, which brings a great deal of excitement to the town of Virginia Beach. While residents can (and do) attest to the busyness that this season brings, there is nothing quite like the unique energy of summertime. If the incoming tourists from all over the country and the world don’t already point to how special Virginia Beach summers are, the enjoyable events we are about to share certainly will. Full of culture, creativity, and fun – there’s no reason to not feel like you’re on vacation in your own town this summer with the following to look forward to!
Also known as the East Coast Surfing Championships, this is a week full of events and entertainment that celebrate the best of the beach.

This year’s festivities will be held August 18th-25th, and incorporate a range of activities, vendors, and competitions that you won’t want to miss.
Wanna rock and roll all night? How about all weekend at this year’s Sandstock, a beach take on Woodstock that features national and local bands covering iconic artists as a tribute to rock and roll.
